San Clemente, California (Thursday, November 4th, 2021)—With Rip Curl North America based in San Clemente, CA, the brand is proud to sign on as the presenting sponsor of the San Clemente Board Riders Club. Rip Curl is committed to supporting the local surf community and the key organizations within it. According to the organization’s Vice President, Frankie D’Andrea, “The club’s mission is to provide a pathway for competitive careers and the benefits of support and mentorship within the club environment,” a natural reflection of Rip Curl’s own brand principles and values as it relates community and fostering the next generation of surfers.
Rip Curl North America’s Director of Marketing, PJ Connell says “We’re fired up to be the presenting sponsor of the local San Clemente Board Riders club. Aside from the financial support we provide for all their growth endeavors, we are also psyched to provide our Headquarters as a place for the team to activate fundraisers events, supply product from our local retail flagships and aide in the production of the technical equipment the club needs to perform at the competitive level.
The sponsorship is effective immediately and the support comes at the perfect time as the club prepares for event #1 of the West Coast Board Riders Club season, “Rip Curl @ The Church” which takes place Saturday, November 6th @ Church Beach in San Clemente, CA. The San Clemente Board Riders squad will face off against Southern California rivals of Dana Point, Laguna & Newport clubs.
Team San Clemente stands a good chance to win the season with elite, professional surfing talent anchoring the team such as Rip Curl’s own Crosby Colapinto, and other stand out locals including Matt Archbold, Chris Ward, Gudauskas brothers, Sawyer Lindblad, Kirra Pinkerton and so many more.
At the end of the day, it’s not just about competition, but more about community and positive mentorship. Club President, Benji Severson had this to say, “From what I’ve witnessed and experienced personally, the Board Riders is more than a club, it is community, and family. A place where kids compete alongside their heroes and heroes alongside surfing’s icons, and families compete together. All supported by the broader community of San Clemente that loves its surf history and celebrates surfing’s future. Big thanks to Rip Curl for all the support!”
